Emmett Till Interpretive Center

Plan your visit to our museum by going to Book Online. We welcome a wide range of visitors from individual visitors to large groups. We have free 15-minute tours with a free smartphone app and private all-day pilgrimages. 

We exist to tell the story of Emmett Till in a way that moves people forward. We use art and storytelling to help process past pains and imagine new possibilities for the future.

Working with Barefoot Photography,we have been able to use art and storytelling to help process past pains and imagine new futures for our community. A special thanks to the Institute for Museum and Library Services for making this project possible.
